On the 30th anniversary of the Blue Valentine tour David Irwin and his band recreated the early years of Tom Waits music.
During his acoustic singer/songwriter period (the ten years or so up to the 1980s before he turned to more experimental music) Tom Waits wrote a catalogue of classic mournful and wryly ironic melodies for which he is probably still best known.
This was a period that saw Waits writing songs such as Martha Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You Tom Traubert's Blues (Waltzing Mathilda) Ol 55 The Heart Of Saturday Night The Piano Has Been Drinking and Closing Time.
His nightclub-style performances are legendary with a voice that has been described as sounding like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months and then taken outside and run over with a car.
The well-known Limerick singer and instrumentalist David Irwin recruited a fine band of musicians to bring us his interpretations of these classic ballads love songs and observations.
